  • Can you think of other predictions Lewis made in The Abolition of Man that have come to pass or are developing, apart from the three predictions Dr. Turley discussed (the death of virtue, the loss of the Tao in the rise of a technocracy, and the trajectory of eugenics)?
  • What are the benefits of a Liberal Arts education? What are the benefits of modern research programs? Is there a way these programs can coexist while also providing students with virtue-forming education? What might a program like this look like?
  • What are the themes of the lesson materials, literature, or media used in your classrooms or learning environments? Do they highlight themes of self-actualization, or lean more towards virtue-formation?
  • What are some ways that teachers can restore an education system that instills virtues and objective values in its students once again?
